  2. A: I am originally from Manchester, Uk, Where i was a touring musician with an indie rock band for a while, got my first record deal over in England when i was 16. From there i toured the world and met a lot of great industry people. Finally settled in Los Angeles (My Wife was A&R at Interscope Records). Once i got married i decided i didn't want to tour anymore so moved more into the production/mixing world... Now i own my own licensing company and recording studio in Los Angeles which was always my dream to begin with. I am very blessed and love what i do.

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: I bring 17 years experience as musician and 10 years as a Producer/Mix Engineer. I am from England originally but live in Los Angeles, I have performed all over the world as a musician and I have also recorded in some amazing recording studios with big artists as a session musician. I have been producing, mixing, and mastering everyday for the last 10 years! I have helped many artists find a path to Management, Publishing and Record deals.

  17. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  18. A: I have worked on several projects from start to finish as a producer and mixer, then helped the artists get signed to publishing deals/recording deals. It's always nice to see people achieve their goals... i usually work with people for a while if we get along.

  21. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  22. A: Right now i am working on pitching some of the artists i have been working with the last few years... Some have already gotten publishing deals/record deals from the material we have made together. I am also working on a few albums from people around the world.

  23. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  24. A: I work with a lot of singers/writers on Sound Better.

  25. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  26. A: Analog Sounds better but Digital makes the work flow much quicker and easier to get the idea out of your head. I use both.

  27. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  28. A: 100% satisfaction. I want them to love the work. If i believe in the music i will always try to get it in front of the right people.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: My work process starts with listening to the song or references several times and feeling the vibe. I then come up with a game plan of how I can help bring the song to the next level. I love to add my own taste/vibe to the track while understanding/maintaining the artists vision. It is all about team work!

  35. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  36. A: They ask if their track can be played on the radio or signed by a big label. I say yes sure!! Let me help you to get it to that level

  37. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  38. A: I make a lot tracks from start to finish... Artists will send me the basic song idea, let me know what they are hoping to achieve and i help them get to the finish line. I also mix and master fully produced/recorded tracks to a "Radio Ready" standard. A lot of times i will also help them get their music in front of publishers/labels and managers through my contacts here in Los Angeles.

  39. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  40. A: That having more instruments and tracks means better sounding songs/mixes. Its all about doing whats best for the song! Less is sometimes more but then again sometimes MORE IS MORE!! It's all about the song!

  41. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  42. A: I like to find out what music they love and what vision they had when they created the song! This is by far the most important thing!

  43. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  44. A: 1. Piano 2. Headphones 3. Laptop 4. Apollo 5. Neumann Mic
